Black Oak Ensemble ~ Avant l’orage: French String Trios, 1926-1939

We don’t tend to focus much on historical music here on ACL, but this album is a timely treat. Aside from the fact that the centenary of many of these pieces is coming up, many of us have been aware of parallels between the 1920s and ’30s and today. It’s a welcome opportunity to travel back to a distant yet curiously close time.
